    Best place for free icons and images?

    School website is in need of some updating and as I'm not the most gifted person when it comes down to creating icons \ images I was wondering if anyone here knows of any decent online repositories where I could find some free icons and images that would be useful on a school website.

    Thanks in advance

    Sam

    Variety of things really.

    As it stands at the moment it's really just icons for the different subjects such as art, maths, science...

    Well here is an example of some icons I was making for another member. Let me know if they would be any use for you.

    Otherwise good place to start would a google search for PNG Icons

    Thanks for the link, Mattx. I need to change a few icons on some of our pages too, and have always been wary of just Googling for images as you have no idea about copyright.

    wow... long time no post!

    saw this, and thought ":O.. i can help here"

    this is my icon resource:

    Free icons | Search through more than 100,000 icons | <--my first stop before i look ANYWHERE else! if you click the icon you can get a download link that leads to a nice transparent BG PNG file and it also informs about licencing(thats normally GPL)

    all the others i have are pretty much links from blogs i have on my RSS... after a small search iv found the following:

    Fresh Free High-Quality Icon Sets Smashing Magazine
    WooFunction: 178 Amazing Web Design Icons|WooThemes
    Freebie Release: Quartz Icon Set Smashing Magazine
    80 Refined Social Networking Icons For Free | Web Resources | WebAppers
    512 Pixel LED Icon Set
    1300+ Free And Quality PNG Icons <--this one has 1300 icons, containing pretty much EVERY icon you will ever need!

    hope that helps?

    @SYSMAN_MK: how do you get the mirror effect below the icons? I've seen it many times but never knew how it was done.
